Re: An introduction to EViews programming.
You could use a for loop to loop through the variables. But if you've already written it out like that, it might be simpler to just leave it as is.
The wfopen command has a "range=" argument to specify the Excel range.

Re: An introduction to EViews programming.
How to use loop if I am going to use that for a series in a workfile?

Re: An introduction to EViews programming.
Hi All
This post is in reference to an earlier post, but I wasn't sure how to reply to that.
I am trying to create a for loop that loops through a group of variables, and then runs an auto ARMA process through each individual equation. The auto ARMA is quite basic, and the loop begins to run, but after two variables it just keeps reiterating and it will not solve.
Here is the for loop for referring to the group, where gexp is the name of the group:
Would this be a data issue? I tried removing the problematic variable but it still encounters the same issue. Here is the auto ARMA code, which follows straight after above:
Thanks for your help!

Re: An introduction to EViews programming.
Dear friends, how to generate two series
Xt=2.2+0.6*Xt1+0.3*Xt2+e
Yt=0.5+0.3*Yt10.6*Yt2+e
where e is white noise, with using rndseed 3006?
Please help
Xt=2.2+0.6*Xt1+0.3*Xt2+e
Yt=0.5+0.3*Yt10.6*Yt2+e
where e is white noise, with using rndseed 3006?
Please help

 Nonnormality and collinearity are NOT problems!

What have you tried so far and where are you stuck?

Re: An introduction to EViews programming.
You have two "for" statements and only one "next"
Re: An introduction to EViews programming.
Hi, I would like to run OLS for 63 time series variables based on 3 explanatory variables with lags depending on the best AIC.
I tried some of previous programs from this forum, but it does not work. It writes: For statement unterminated in "FOR !J=1 TO 4"
Thank you very much for you help. best regards, Jara

Code: Select all
!aic = 99999999
!maxlags = 4
!bestlag = 0
smpl @first+!maxlags @last
matrix(15,63) coefs
for !j=1 to !maxlags
for !i=1 to 63
equation eq{!i}.ls y{!i} c y{!i}(1 to !j) x(0 to !j) z(0 to !j)
if eq.@aic < !aic then
!bestlag = !j 'if this lag specification has the best AIC, then store this lag as !bestlag.
!aic = eq{!i}.@aic
endif
colplace(coefs, eq{!i}.@coefs, !i) 'store coefficients into matrix
next
Thank you very much for you help. best regards, Jara

Re: An introduction to EViews programming.
You have two for statements but only one next statement. You need another one.

Re: An introduction to EViews programming.
ups. thank you.
it works now, but it seems to me strange that all 63 regressions have full 4 lags for all explanatory variables ...
and is there any easy way how to download the matrix with the pvalues? I used to use

Re: An introduction to EViews programming.
use eq.@pvals rather than eq.@coefs

Writing a text message to the output file
Hi
I want to write a text message to the output file :
output(t) c:\out.txt
text message
ls x1 c x2
Could you please help? I tried to use logmsg and logsave to the above output file. However, only regression result is written to the output file, but not the text message.
Thank you very much, Horward
